Editorial Reviews

Ray Liotta and Kiefer Sutherland star as doctors whose devotion to healing the sick goes way beyondthe call of duty in a film that's captivating, compelling and "as vital and immediate as the evening news" (Associated Press). When Dr. Peter Morgan (Sutherland) begins his medical internship at a Veteran's Administration hospital, he expects to breeze through on his way to a cushy practice. Instead, he's thrust into a bizarre bureaucratic maze where the health of patients is secondary to politics. And the temperature really rises when he teams up with some freewheeling physicians, led by Dr. Richard Sturgess (Liotta), who think they've learned how to break the rulesand save liveswithout getting caught.

Customer Reviews

The DVD would not play as the wrong region was sent to me....so I had to send it back.

Love the movie cause it is pretty close to the truth about how the Govt sees and treats Veterans and physicians and interns who really care about patient care.
Keith Boettche
Now imagine something seriously wrong and you need to see a doctor or go to the hospital and you can see where this movie really shines.

Article 99 is a fresh story that needs to be told as it keeps on the lines of the truth. The story its self is very enjoyble and with a cast that is so well put together this film never goes down hill. It will keep your attention from start to finish as you will be left thinking about this truly magnification story that will stay in your head for weeks.

Article 99 isn't the "action film" which many see it as, nor is it a true comedy. It's more of a satirical parody of what these vets go through when trying to obtain their "guaranteeed lifetime medical benefits". Bearing in mind that Vets of these eras did receive that guarantee in exchange for higher pay rates, it accurately depicts a portions of what these vets have to go through to receive the care FOR WHICH THEY PAID.
Most who have lived through those eras or who are frustrated with the lost promise- similar to a retroactive pay cut have a more precise understanding of the film. Vets of these wars & particularly those who have attempted to access the quality medical care promised them see may be able to view this film as highly accurate. The humor is ingrained in attempting to receive this retroactive benefit promise. The film's very accurate depiction & humor makes it almost sad by illustrating in view of the degradation that the Vet must encounter when trying to access their medical care, when needed.
It also illustrates the low status given to the Vet in attempting to access health care. I suppose if one really wants an accurate feel for this film, they should sit in a VA Hospital clinic reception area for 6-12 hours so as to see a doctor who will refer them to another to see in 2 months, or schedule a test 4 weeks off, with instructions to return to this dr thereafter. The unknowing viewer can walk though the clinic to discover that the Vet who saw the referral doctor and had the test 2 months earlier, will in many cases meet with "lost records" & the need for a rescheduled appointment. By the time of returning to see the origianl Dr., he/ she is usually no longer on rotation at this government hospital.

I first saw this movie years ago and have worked at VA hospitals. I laughed as well as shed tears. It brought back floods of memories---all good. Those memories sustain and uplift me daily. Reminds me that, indeed, the journey was well worth taking!!

I have seen this movie several times, and now will purchase it. Anyone that thinks the government's Universal Health Care plan is going to be the cure all for health care should see this movie. Then think on expanding all that happens from just the Veteran's Administration to a National scope. Very scary. It would be like the California DMV running the insurance companies.

As a thirteen year disabled Vietnam Era combat veteran who has been wrestling with the VA system for the past twenty years since being medically disabled (That is AFTER fighting the US Army to save my career or get my disability recognized) I laughed through my tears with my Vietnam Veteran brother as we watched this film.

Do you wonder why PTSD vets go off and do crazy things at VA hospitals? Watch this film. Do you wonder why we vets seem angry all the time? Watch this film. Do you REALLY think government run healthcare is the way America should go? WATCH THIS FILM!!!

Anyone who believes in socialized medicine should have to endure the Army's medical system where the good doctors have to fight the system -that is AFTER you get to see a real doctor because REAL doctors are in short supply, it took me five years after my initial release from medical care when I was injured in a parachute accident to see a real doctor again- I had to go through the medics and the Battalion Aid Station, the Physician Assistants at the Troop Medical Clinic and only when I was in danger of being chaptered out of service for my disability did I get to see a real doctor at separation physicals who spotted my condition and referred me to specialists who could at least diagnose if not help me. Then, I was given the left foot of fellowship on a medical discharge and left to the tender mercies of the VA.

I've met some good VA doctors, but the problem is every time you go back to the clinic you see a new one and have to start over again. Or they make and appointment for a test two months down the road and a followup visit six months later to learn the results.

Yeah, we need the government to run healthcare.

This movie is a true and accurate depiction of the way that our vets in this country are treated by the Veteran's Administration and the VA hospitals all over this country. This shows how good doctors can be stymied by the buracracy of the federal government and the attitude of the officials of these hospitals, most of whom are just trying to go up the ladder on the backs of our vets in this country
